RENO, Nev. (AP) - A northern Nevada hospital official says two adults and four children missing for two days in below-zero cold are in "good shape."

The six were found earlier Tuesday when rescuers guided in part by cellphone signals and footprints in the snow found them alive and well near their overturned Jeep.

Pershing General Hospital CEO Patty Bianchi says they suffered a little from exposure and dehydration, but all are stable and had no frostbite. She said the father kept them alive and well. The children range in age from 3 to 10.

About 200 people searched by land and air after the group of six failed to return Sunday from a trip to play in the snow near their hometown of Lovelock, in Nevada's high desert.
